Abstract:

"January 1969: the blowout on an offshore oil platform off the coast of Santa Barbara, California, and the resulting oil spill proves to be a transformative event in pollution control and the nascent environmental activism movement. It accelerates the advancement of federal government policies and will change the way the federal government manages environmental pollution. Over the next three years, Congress works to pass laws such as the National Environmental Policy Act and the Clean Water Act, and revolutionizes the way the US deals with environmental pollution. Slick Policy presents an original and in-depth history of the Santa Barbara spill. Teresa Sabol Spezio shows how scientists and politicians used public outrage over the spill to implement wide-ranging changes to federal environmental and science policy, and demonstrates the advancements to offshore oil drilling, pollution technology, and water protection law that resulted from these actions"--Back cover.
